Default Ram 1500 Tonneau Cover Suggestions?

Hi,


I don't know much about the Tonneau covers but when I get the money together this is the first thing I want to do. I did some searching and saw the price ranges are pretty expensive..from $200-$1000. I also see they have hard top as well as the flat/Soft Tonneau covers. I was curious the top 2 or 3 covers people like on this forum? I know everyone has different Taste, so I'm just curious about general consensus and what I can expect to pay for my 2 door/Reg Cab Ram 1500 cover. Thanks for any suggestions in advance.

Really kinda depends on your needs. I went with the Trifecta three fold soft cover. It's easy to fold up for hauling, or remove it If I need to haul my four wheeler, and it doesn't leak water. I love it and it works great for me. I think tonno pro makes a cheaper verson of what I have (it had good reviews aswell.)

i like the truxedo low-pro soft covers. they fit in between you box so you can still have rails on. the seal completely and roll up easy for when you want to throw your toys in the back.

In a lot of ways, I wish I would have went with that one. I just worry about the life of the velcro.

I like the look of the Leer 800 and I like to use my bed like a large trunk for suitcases and things on trips and dont worry about it if I go inside somewhere and I can remove it in 1min with one more person to help lift it off if needed. down side is it is kinda pricey !

Do you have any pics with the 800 on your truck?
I had a leer 700 on my 02 Dakota and loved it. Undecided on what to get for my new Ram, I want one that can be easily removed.

Or does anyone else have pics of the leer 700 or 800 on a 4th gen?

Can't pm yet. But if you have more pics I would really like to see them. Wondering how it mounts and what its like when its removed, if the hinges are in the way.
Not sure if you can pm me and I can reply?

Had to take it in to be painted it was scratched somewhere between leer and making it on my truck . they said it will be done monday afternoon so after I get it back I will take some more pictures . they messed up the paint the first time so gave them one more chance before they send it back to leer . So I have removed it twice now There are two T Handle bolts on each side that hold hinges and one Hair Pin Cotter on each side back shock hinge then unplug wires get a friend and lift .
